LYRICS

I THINK WE SHOULD BE FRIENDS
i think we should be friends
it´s the end of all trouble
let´s have some breakfast
under the sun

i think we should be friends
friedrischain the place to be
boxhagener platz
warschauer and the laundromat

give me a break i think we should be friends

i think we should be friends
it´s the way for you and me
sharing a rainbow back at your place
i think we should be friends
friedrischain the place to be right now

give me a break i think we should be friends
i think we should be friends
humble respect is real love
for respect humble respect is real love
DON'T CHANGE YOUR MIND
shall we have some smoke
a delicious time
talk about the world
be a friend of mine
will you show me what
you´ ve been writing down so far
drink a cup of tea

will you act so kind
nice and well behaved
with a tender stare
being so at home at my place

it´s right is fine is this what you want
i´m glad you feel like this but
dont´don´t don´t
don´t change your mind
don´t change your mind
just dont´change your mind

do you feel like come back
get a train on it´s track
lying to my face say you love me again
hide your secret account give some turn around
cut my life in two and keep the big slice for you
say you miss me blind that i´m one of a kind
stab me in the back go ahead stab me in the back kill me
come with me feel me just keep your word and don´t change your mind

don´t change your mind just don´t change your mind
for a night or two if you have to lie can you make it true
MY TIME IS GONNA COME
time , time ,time
my time is gonna come i heard it on the space between your words
my time is gonna come i feel it in the air that blows in my face
my time is gonna come i hope you stay close to me
´cause i need to celebrate just wait and see just wait and see
my time is gonna come a rythm on the bridge rattles my bones
my time is gonna come winter already here it´s freezing cold
my time time
my time is gonna come i hope you stay close to me
cause i need to celebrate just wait and see just wait and see
my time is gonna come all this world will fly away
i hope you stay close to me ´cause i need to celebrate
MY LOVE WILL SET YOU FREE
´cause my love will set you free
your love will set me free
cause my love will set you free
your love will set me free
look out from your window
i´m writing a letter for you on this blue clouded sky
in just a few mornings we´ll cry eye to eye
let´s me hold you in my arms until the very end
´cause my love will set you free
your love will set me free
cause my love will set you free
your love will set me free
there is a hole in the roof
this air cleans our bodies as sweet falls the rain
i´m thru with the knowledge that brings only pain
never is forever as together means the world to me
´cause my love will set you free
your love will set me free
cause my love will set you free
your love will set me free
my love will set you free just take my hand and walk by my side
never is forever as together means the world to me
´cause my love will set you free
your love will set me free
cause my love will set you free
my love will set you free
my love will set you free
my love will set you free
look up from your window
i´m writing a password for you on this blue clouded sky
NOT A SOUND
not the sound
not the sound
i am not the sound i´m the thunder

time for the tunnel tunnel of time
the year of the dragon will do fine
getting it wrong smashing it down
was just perfect
i am not the sound i´m the thunder
i am not the sound
i am not the sound i´m the thunder
i am not the sound
just the thunder
time for the tunnel tunnel of time
the year of the dragon will do fine
getting it wrong smashing it down
was just perfect again
i am not the sound i´m the thunder
i am not the sound
i am not the sound i´m the thunder
i am not the sound
just the thunder
HOW MANY TIMES DID YOU SAVE MY SOUL
as i crawl from bed to bathroom i can see your reflection in my own eyes
helping me to breath slaying those demons
making up small wonders messy as i am ( not Lionel)

how many times did you save my soul
how many times did you save my soul
how many times did you save my soul
how many times did you save my soul

I was bound to overdose get the final curtain slide for good
losing mind and shape
you can drive me home safe shut my eyelids off with invisible hands
how many times did you save my soul
how many times did you save my soul
how many times did you save my soul
how many times did you save my soul
it´s secret and a miracle to walk thru life with your hand in my hand
knowing that life and death can be bend over by humankind
how many times did you save my soul
how many times did you save my soul
how many times did you save my soul
how many times did you save my soul
AFTER THE BIG WAR
come close to me i don´t need to see your face
but i wanna feel your warmth
sing me an answer whisper my name
i can feel your prayers help me thru the game
i will travel days and nights to your place
i will sing this song for you
we can still make love
after the big war
after the big war after the big war
their war
come close to me i don´t need to see your face
but i wanna feel your warmth
sing me an answer whisper my name
i can feel your prayers help me thru the game
i will travel days and nights to your place
with my book and my guitar and in my mind your face
i will sing this song for you
we can still make love
after the big war after the big war after the big war
their war

there are too many souls searching for the truth
they need to hold us down
to hold us down to hold us down
DOWN BY THE RIVER
you know this one is for you , dont you?
let me stay down by the river
let me stay down by the river
let me stay down by the river
let me just stay down by the river
one more week i got a lot of love to give
and this is the right time
give me a little bit more
let me stay down by the river
let me stay down by the river
let me stay down by the river
let me stay down by the river
river

i got a friend a beautiful woman
she wants to stay as well
she´s got a lot of love to give
and this is the right time
give her a little bit more
give me a little bit more
give us a little bit more
down by the river
down by the river
down by the river
THERE IS A LIGHT
There is a light a tiny ray of light
hidden by my thoughts
this dark and painful device i have on my body
my battered frame needs a lot of sun
i just don´t seem to walk the walk
yet there is a light a glorious flash
waiting for me to wake up and be free!!!

Leonino’s ‘Naked Tunes’ Proves He’s Still Got Something To Tell Us

From the first few strains of Naked Tunes, Leonino sounds like he could be the third member of Flight of the Conchords and I mean that as the highest of compliments. Just listen to “I Think We Should Be Friends (feat, Pier Bucci).” He’d fit right in...

LEONINO – NAKED TUNES

...If you’ve been a naughty boy and forgotten Valentine’s Day, flowers, candy and ‘My Love Will Set You Free’ will get you off the hook; I guarantee it. And if you can sing the ballad, with the Spanish accent and box guitar, you’re in for the kiss of your life. It’s what the lyrics are designed for. . If you love you a gospel tune now and then you will be happy ‘How Many Times Did You Save My Soul’ made the final cut. Like in most of the album’s other nine tracks, the harmonies are impeccable, guided by a steely piano...

Experience Leonino's Naked Tunes - An Album Review

The singer's voice carries along well with the melodies featured on his album, Naked Tunes, 10 tracks that speak to the current generation as González has been doing since the 1980s. Naked Tunes on its surface appears to be straightforward pop, but there are tinges of rock mixed in making for an impactful audio journey...

Leonino - Naked Tunes (Hueso Records)

...Moving to Germany in the early 00s and going out as a solo act, Gonzalez, aka Leonino has reinvented himself as an off kilter, eccentric folk/pop luminary not unlike Scott Walker. On his new album,Naked Tunes, he sounds a lot like John Cale’s on his newer releases, effortlessly embracing modern sounds and culture adeptly enough while remaining tied to his past…

Thrift Review: Leonino - Naked Tunes

...In terms of his singing voice, Leonino appears to be channelling the low, whispered chansons of Serge Gainsbourg. Over the course of 5 decades, Serge honed a knack - uniquely his own - for creating cynical and deeply ironic pop songs. A genius at turning ugly subject matter into beautiful and indeed lyrical music, Serge's lyrics are frequently misinterpreted by Anglo ears. This perverse approach to songcraft was best exemplified in the title and lyrics of his most universally known song, 'Je t'aime... moi non plus' ('I love you... me neither'). Leonino writes with a similar approach, but instead of providing a constant source of wit, his lyrics are often snappy and acerbic in tone...
